Thats what research and good sources are for. Its just my opinion but money shouldn't be an incentive for research. And Flight Sim sites - again, in my opinion - are not the place to look for data.
Lighting - can you list what criteria so far (that everyone has agreed) that would be acceptable? Don't want to add something already posted.
If you look at posting #1 you will see notes on the locations of this information. I would not say the "everyone has agreed" on criteria, but there has been very little disagreement about criteria per say. One of the best things to come out in this thread is the disagreement over what sources of performance data for applying the criteria are the best. I was planning to do another summary of significant posts when we reached post #200. I think I better get started on that sooner because of the important discussions on sources. I have been closely following these discussions and have some thoughts about how we can address the issue in the most practicable way. Before I do that, please consider the following: most of the performance data issues concern the charts and tables of speed, climb rate, turning radius, roll rate, range, etc.. What I don't see being addressed are the myriad other factors affecting ultimate performance of pilots and aircraft over a period of combat usage. That kind of data chart and table is harder to come by. I'll get an update and some additional thoughts up as soon as possible. Thank you for your interest in the thread.
